FALL DECORATING

Fall decor
There was a little nip in the air this weekend in Arkansas.  It inspired me to get out my pretty velvet pumpkins, which were made by my friend, Susie.

FRIDAY FAVES-ANOTHER FALL EDITION

Instead of commentary about these beautiful Fall inspiration photos, I’m going to do a little chatting with you today. I hope you’ll indulge me while I work through this “out loud”.  Some of you, my dear readers, may have noticed that my heart hasn’t been in my blog lately.  I’m questioning myself a lot these days.

THINKING ABOUT HALLOWEEN

Have you started thinking about Halloween yet? I am re-posting a Halloween table from last year, because we will be into Halloween season before you know it. Halloween Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
Our breakfast room is difficult to photograph in the best of circumstances, but my camera broke, and I am using my daughter’s camera.  My camera and I had learned to get along with one another, but I haven’t developed much of a relationship with my daughter’s camera, so please excuse the pictures.

"FALL-ING" SLOWLY

Fall Transtion Mantel

I previously showed you my Fall mantel, decorated with cotton bolls.  With all of the Fall colors turning up in Blogville, I started wanting to have some at my house.  If you’ve visited my blog for awhile, you’ve seen this Fall Welcome banner, which I have had for years and years and…  I still enjoy getting it out in the Fall.

FRIDAY FAVES-NEW JERSEY PROPERTY

The following pictures are taken from the Sotheby Realty site, where this property is listed for $1,997,000.00.

If I won the lottery, this property would ALMOST be enough to make me move to New Jersey.  Notice, I said “almost”.  No offense to those who live in New Jersey, but I’ve lived there before, and it would take a lot of enticement for me to return.  (I have to admit that where we lived and our circumstances probably had a lot to do with these feelings.)

WHERE DID THE MOJO GO?

I love to read the blog, Words on Wheels.  Debbie is not only an inspiration, she is an awesome writer with an awesome sense of humor.  Her term, “I’ve lost my mojo” is just so appropriate for the way I’ve been feeling this week that I had to borrow it from her.  My mojo got up and left the building, and I don’t know if it is coming back.

It all started with this little bundle.  Our sixth grandchild was born on August 29th.  Bradleigh Carter is our son’s and daughter-in-law’s fourth child.  Our daughter and son-in-law have given us a granddaughter, Madison, and a grandson, Gavin.

FRIDAY FAVES-FALL DÉCOR EDITION

Fall Home Tour {Virtual} and a GIVEAWAY

OUR SOUTHERN HOME

Have you started thinking about Fall décor (or maybe you’ve already started decorating for Fall).  I’ve been collecting ideas, and my faves today are some of those ideas.  I love the breadbox filled with Fallness on this table on the porch.  OK, that is one giant piece of driftwood!

FALL TABLESCAPE REVIEW

full tbl2

2012

Today, I am looking back at some of my past Fall tablescapes.  This Fall picnic was posted in 2012.  At that time, the name of this blog was Bargain Hunting & Chatting with Laurie (and obviously, I wanted everyone to know it, since my watermark on this photo is huge!).  One day, I realized that I wasn’t sharing much about hunting for bargains, so I changed the name of the blog.  (Sometimes I’m a little impulsive.)

A FALL MANTEL IN COTTON COUNTRY

Fall Mantel

In my neck o’ the woods, Fall means cotton blooms and then cotton bolls growing in the fields; cotton harvesting and cotton ginning.  So, my first Fall mantel this year is all about cotton.

FRIDAY FAVES-A CALIFORNIA ESTATE EDITION

31922_Paseo_Monte_Vista-27[1]

 

Unfortunately, this estate in California has already sold.  Otherwise, you know I’d be there to buy it at $6,500,000.00!  I’m such a silly dreamer.
